Ratings for Dr. Julia Shcherbatykh
i was referred to julia for skin problems in my groin area, and she was extremely helpful - i felt like she actually cared about the issue and wanted to figure out what the problem was. although i waited 20 minutes in the office (which was hot enough it made me dizzy) i really appreciated the care
I have been a patient of Dr. Julia's for many years and after my last appointment with her felt the need to write a review. My whole experience with her and her clinic is very positive. Her staff are warm, sympathetic and very attentive. They always try to accommodate my schedule for an appointment and return my phone calls promptly. Dr. Julia is the best doctor I've had! She is very professional and knowledgeable. She never makes me feel rushed at my appointment, even if she has a waiting room full of other patients. I feel that Dr. Julia genuinely cares for my well-being and I'm so grateful to have her as my doctor.
My first visit with Dr. Julia I went in because I believed I had strep throat. I am a skinny 19 YO female. The first thing Dr.Julia says when she walks in the door is “Hi. Do you know if you are pregnant?” I told her I wasn’t sexually active and she immediately left the room. Then the receptionist/nurse came in and told me as per protocol that I needed to pee in a cup. After fighting with her about that, I did it. And then Dr. Julia comes back in to see me after about 20 minutes and tells me “So you’re not pregnant”. Like NO KIDDING. I came in for strep throat. Thank you for forcing me to pee in a cup and not listening to what I had to say at all. Terrible experience and I am NEVER going back. So disrespectful.
Dr Julia is very friendly. Sometimes I have a hard time getting my chance to talk though and then I forget my question. I've had a couple referrals not sent. I called about one and it was never sent. About 6 months ago or so she sent some other referrals for me and I've never heard anything since. I know I'm going to need to call and see if they were sent. Tatiana is really bad. She doesn't seem to have any understanding and often just stares blankly. I don't think she has a clue what she is doing. Dr. Julia has not made me feel rushed which I really appreciate.
Our family became patients of Dr. Julia after Dr. Langton passed away. Our family rarely attends the doctor's office and it would be nice to be able to see your doctor when you need to go. It is difficult to get in to see Dr. Julia without having to wait a few weeks. I was recently told that Dr. Julia didn't have any appointments available in July and was booking into Aug. When I inquired if Dr. Ivan was taking new patients (maybe I could transfer my family to him) I was informed he was but the office did not do internal transfers. While I tried to explain to the secretary my reasons for inquiring about transferring to him( because it was difficult to see Dr Julia due to her limited availability), she blamed ME because of my work schedule. Unbelievable! Then offered me an appointment with Dr. Julia in July after she told me there were no appointments available. I have met Dr. Julia on a couple of occasions over the last few years and she seemed quite nice. I did receive a follow up call after a mammogram and was appreciative of that. I last saw her in 2015 and waited 7 months for a referral to a women's clinic and never did get the second referral to the sleep clinic that was requested. I'm not sure how these things fall through the cracks. I'm sure she is a good doctor but maybe is spread too thin and depends on the nurse practitioners to assist, which is totally fine sometimes. All I have to say is that when you rarely go see a doctor, it would be nice to be able to see your doctor. Thinking about moving the family.
We have been a patient of Dr. Julia for over a year now. I must say that the initial meeting with her was good, she was friendly. Since being a patient of hers it is next to impossible to see her. Wait time for an appointment with her is 6 weeks or more. When you call to find out about test results, that is a joke in itself. The reports are not read even when her staff send her notices to review the results. I have waited to almost 3 months before I got my test results. Referrals to other doctors are not sent. Have been waiting to hear from another doctor and when inquired about a referral being sent I have been told that they have not received one. I am finding it very hard to take. It is like one blow after another, its like she just does not give a hoot as to what is going on with you. Just keep hoping and waiting to hear that things will progress so you can have your health issues truly dealt with. She has done the same thing with my daughter. I am not impressed at all. It is sad to see that this is how the medical profession is. Not all but some.
